Director and Assistant Director


As a Director and individual

Every project has its own essence. And it is my job to bring that essence to life in the most authentic way. And when I mean authentic, I mean finding that half/way relationship between the fundamentals of the main idea, the heart of the project and the objective of it. Sometimes it is clear during the pre-production stage, sometimes it can be clear at the first coffee talking meeting between the producer, showrunner, manager and the Director, and sometimes it gets clear as we are rolling. Depending on the kind of project, of course.

As an Assistant Director

Now I am in charge of making the machine work at its perfection, with the proper speed and oil. So that it runs smoothly and becomes an efficient workflow. You could say that I become the heart of the project, the third and fourth arm that holds Direction and Production.

Some of the tasks I’ve encountered as an AD:

Manage the technical CREW

Be the communication channel between the Director and Actors & Crew

Confirm shooting plans with the planner and production

List the actors, extras and extras
